In addition to many of the same tools and features available on staff portals, the student portal is populated with assignments and grades posted by their teachers.
(1) Icon Toolbar
The student's portal has the same icons as staff and parent accounts, but also includes the Dropbox icon where a time/date stamped archive of every file submitted online is maintained. Each file is stored on School Loop's system and may be downloaded by the student. The last submitted version of a file is the only one archived.
(2) Academics & Attendance
All of the grades and progress reports published by the student's teachers are located here. Additionally, students can see the number of zeros for each course, progress reports from prior classes (Prior Schedule button located at bottom right of Portal Page), and a list of their current assignments with their due dates.
Links to course sites, calendars, notes and lockers are grouped by the courses in which the student is enrolled. There are also links that allow students to quickly send a LoopMail message to one or all of their teachers. If the student has a prior schedule, then a Prior Schedule button will appear at the bottom of the schedule. The prior schedule includes all classes the student was enrolled in previously for the current year even if only for a day.
The optional Attendance feature displays a Student's absences and tardies for the current week by period and/or for the full day. Click the View All Attendance button to view all attendance data for the school year. Click the Show/Hide button to see a description of what your school's attendance codes mean.

You can click Zeros Alert to get a special report with details about any assignments with a zero score. Prior Schedule link will display any classes the student has dropped or been transferred out of during the current school year. The Submitted Work button allows you to see any files that your student has turned in for their assignments. The Show/Hide Grades button allow you to show/hide course averages on your portal page.
(4) Task List: Current Assignments

Every assignment published by the student's teachers appears in the student's calendar. Other events in the calendar can include events from groups, school wide events, and personal event published by the student. The calendar has icons for day, week, and month views and filters to narrow the types of events displayed. Assignments on the week calendar also display a "Turn In Work" icon for submitting work to their teachers.
Plus Gradebook Users - files cannot be submitted via the Turn-In-Work link for Calendar-Only assignments.
(6) Custom Data
The optional Custom Data feature displays information determined by your school. They can choose to display specific student information such as library fines, lunch balances or anything else they deem important. This information is determined individually by each school and is displayed at their convenience.
An alert appears when a parent or after school professional tries to monitor your account.
